“Great time”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

I have just stayed 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Central Plaza and as always, the stay was great, Jessica, Queenie, Alice, Cathy and Sunny in the Executive lounge are always happy, and very helpful with any problems I may have had and they always go that extra mile. The coffee, I think needs to be changed, as it’s too strong, maybe a few different kinds of coffee would be better. A big thanks also to Bessie, my room was always immaculate and if I need extra water or soft drinks for the mini bar, that was not a problem.
The hotel is not known to a lot of Taxi drivers (not the Hotels fault) so make a note of the hotel phone number 86(10)83970088.
It has a good gym and nice indoor swimming pool. The breakfast is good with a massive selection of western and Asian food

Room Tip: North side in summer, cos it's cooler

This is my second stay at this hotel, the first was around 5 years ago. The hotel was great back then and it was great again this time around.

We upgraded to a business floor room as part of the booking process. When you arrive you are whisked up to the club lounge for an express check in, and then your bags are brought up to the room.

The lounge is a great place to chill out in the afternoon for a coffee or a drink in the evening. One very minor grumble is the HI website advertises afternoon tea as part of the club benefits. Dont be expecting cakes or sandwiches - it is a few biscuits and coffee.

The only downside I had on my first visit was the location, and this hasn't changed. The hotel is about 20-30 minutes walk from the nearest subway station, and every taxi driver we flagged down had problems finding the hotel. After my first visit I put that down to the hotel being new, but the hotel is over 5 years old now. The hotel do give you a card with the address in chinese, but this still caused us problems, with a couple of cab drivers refusing to take us as they didn't know where to go.

The only point to mention is the concierge, Storm. After a long flight and travelling for 24 hours, we wanted to grab a bite to eat and chill out. Storm found us in the restaurant and tried to talk us into buying a trip to the great wall, at a cost of rmb500 per person. Jet lagged, we thought this was a good price, until we did a bit of research on the internet and found the going rate for these tours is around rmb160! The tour Storm offered us included the ming tombs, a jade factory tour and lunch. We eventully booked a great tour which included all that Storm offered including a trip to a silk factory.

As much as I like this hotel I would not return here simply due to the problems trying to grpet back to the hotel from downtown.

We stayed at Holiday Inn Central Plaza in Beijing for 4 days in Oct/Nov 2011. It was an excellent hotel and at a very good price. The breakfast and happy hour were outstanding. But above and beyond all of that was the extraordinary concern, care, and service of Storm at the the Concierge Desk. He arranged both train and plane travel for us and answered many, many questions. You will not be disappointed in this hotel and you will be amazed at the incredible assistance provided by Storm! You will be very glad you chose this hotel!

We booked a club level room for seven nights. We especially appreciated the personal customer service provided by Storm the concierge who looked after our local tours, and the staff at the club lounge - the coloring materials and DVD they provided in the room for our two young boys was a nice touch.

Overall, a very good stay - save for the limited and repetitive buffet breakfast selection, and the inconvenience of being very far from the metro, with no choice but to deal with horrible Beijing taxis.

We stayed here with a tour group. Reception staff not too friendly. The room was very spacious and comfortable, although too hot for our liking (we set the thermostat to 15C and it still didn't help!). Bathroom was nice with great shower. Breakfast was fantastic, with many different stations to please many different tastes. Personnel in the restaurant very polite and helpful. Can't say much about the hotel's location since we were bussed everywhere.

Stayed in here for 3 nights last week on the 15th floor King Executive Room.

I recomend to stay in the executive room which gives you access to snacking anytime, and a nice properly made latte on level 16.

Room: clean, spacious with large TV, and free wifi.

Bathroom: clean , but a bit old. separate bath & shower. Nice Constant Hot Water.

Breakfast: excellent and various choise from Chinese & Western. It also has made to order noodle station, pancake & crepes station, and egg station.

Staff: check-in staff is not too friendly and never smile.

Worth to note that there are lots of tourist also stayed in this hotel so it could be difficult to get a seat for breakfast.

Transport: plenty of taxi around, and the city centre location made it not too far to anywhere.

We booked a Suite at this hotel as we needed an extra bed for our grand daughter. She had her own room attached to ours. Her's had a large TV and own toilet. Booking this grade of Suite allowed us free laundry, free breakfast and a 6 to 8 snack that was good enough to have as a dinner. All drinks were free. The staff were more than helpful and spoke English well. The room was excellent and the hotel had everything one could ask for.

Room Tip: Ask for the upgrade Executive suite level
